of the relationship between america and israel right now? >> reporter: there's no question, piers, obvious to the world, not just to these two leaders, they've had a frosty and unfriendly relationship. president obama is left of center, believes the prime minister netanyahu has said some things he finds insulting or didn't like. prime minister netanyahu right of center, supported romney in the last presidential election, has at times stopped at president obama, my language, doesn't get it. both of these guys just won elections. they are in the words of a top american official the other day, stuck with each other. and it's very crystal clear today, both of them have decided to try to turn a new page. are they going to be best friends, i think not. but are they going to be better friends? today it appeared they're going to at least try at that. and that makes a difference. when you're dealing with the iran nuclear crisis, the syria civil crisis, the question of whether you can get the palestinians and the israelis back on the table. if they like each other a bit more, it helps when things ge
this is the president, this is president obama's first state visit to israel, right? and ben, as you mentioned, i want to get you in here one more time before we let you go. this is in many ways, the president is making up for what are may be seen as past transgressions, whether that's the cairo speech or the tense relationship that he and bibi have had in the oval office in their bilateral press conferences in the u.s. whether that's the relationship during the campaign when netanyahu basically was a romney support supporter. how convinced are you, standing there if tel aviv, that the relationship between these two leaders is going to be measurably different, which is to say better after this trip? i think a lot will depend on how iran is dealt with. i think in so far as president obama is seen taking a strong hand on iran, that gives him a little more legitimacy to push bibi on the palestinian issue. you have to remember that in benjamin netanyahu's first term, when he clashed with president clinton, he was blamed for causing the cries cries by israelis. and this time around, people have generally s
. right now investigators say his death is unexplained. >> heather: president obama this hour is on his way back to washington after his trip to the middle east. for the president, the four-day visit was an opportunity to reassure the region's political leaders and people particularly israel, that he is committed to their security. leeland vittert is live with more. >> late night saturday night, the president left here a little more than 24 hours ago. so aall accounts, the charm offensive worked. he walked into israel with a 10% likeability rating, too early for new polls. but at least this 24 hour analysis says the numbers are sure to go up. it's more complicated in jordan where he had a tougher mission. he landed in jordan with two missions. one is to show solidarity with king abdullah. also had to go to talk about the syrian civil war, the refugee crisis, and president obama got quite pointed when he talked about the risk inside syria of muslims extremists taking over and possibly getting their hands on the syrian army's vast arsenal of weapons. >> i am very concerned about syria bec
is the department of justice leading up to civil rights division. president obama in his nomination says that he believes that thomas perez will push his administration's priorities at the labor department. >> we're going to have to work very hard to make sure that folks find jobs with good wages and good benefits. we have to make sure veterans returning home from iraq and afghanistan have a chance to put their incredible skills and leadership to work at home. we need to build ag immigration system that works for every employee and every family and every business. >> some republicans criticizing the pick according to a department of justice inspector general report showing deep ideological divisions within the department that thomas perez headed up predating the obama administration. republicans charge the decisions whether to pursue certain cases or not were politically motivated, that from senator jeff sessions, a republican from alabama, nominating mr. perez to the important post, the president placed his drive to promote his flawed immigration policies over the needs of millions unemployed a
you're right. the problem is, when obama talked about the fundamental transformation of the nation this is what he meant. he went after the four main pillars of the u.s. economy, industrial base, financial sector, energy sector, and health care. once you remake those parts of the economy into a socialist model, it's very tough to unravel. very tough to unwrap the tentacles of redistribution is him. then i start to do it with the medical device repeal the we just saw yesterday. they might start to pick at a little bit. and telling you, this is so big and so comprehensive and so deeply ingrained in our economy, it's going to be difficult to one vote -- on wind. we need strong leader second elected. stuart: bottom line, it's very difficult to take back what you have given the lesson from england, know a lot about this, politicize medical coverage, politicize the medical system so that if someone is not given the treatment that think they're going to get the appeal directly to the politicians who then have to respond on the treatment of this individual. i remember tony blair in questio

the obama administration you hear much more of a neutral message. >> that's right, anderson. and the two people we heard in congress are greater among equals, let's say. it's the chairman of the house intelligence committee, mike rogers, and the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee, dianne feinstein. they admitted they had been briefed. this isn't their opinion. and that's an awkward fact for the obama administration. the president is in the region, we're hearing now from officials that it's going to take a couple days for them to determine whether or not a chemical weapon is used. and let's be honest. by then, president obama will be out of the region, safely back here and in a better position to make a decision. >> john, you're there in israel for the president's visit. has this changed the tone, the tenor of the president's trip? >> without a doubt. look, the nuclear confrontation with iran is still number one. with the president sitting down with prime minister netanyahu to talk issues. but anderson, i'm in jerusalem, 135 miles to damascus. because of the threat of chemica

david shuster in new york. david, did today's speech do anything to quiet any of president obama's critics on the left or even on the right? >> i think it will quiet the critics on the right particularly because the president changed u.s. policy when it came to israeli settlement. professionally the u.s. said there can be no peace talks until israel stopped building settlements on the occupied territoried. today the president lectured the israelis saying it's counterproductive and does not help the peace process but he said the talks continue any way. did he not tell the israelis that you must stop building the settlements like he has in the past. >> michael: the speech did not have a lot of expectation. did they lower the bar because they knew no big speech was going to happen on this trip? i was skeptical of why he was even going. >> a couple of things. clearly, there is a political need here in the united states. the polls show that the the president is wobbly among jewish voters, but if he can be seen showing the united states' strength and standing with the best ally in the

in the same way. what do you mean? >> i think that's right. as you mentioned the obama stimulus did pour about $150 billion into our infrastructure and its build america bonds was a hidden stimulus inside the stimulus put in another $180 billion. that's a start. that's how you start to create the sort of strong infrastructure that makes people want to make our economy more competitive and make people want to invest in us. you have to ask what the goal is. it's not just to build more roads or sewers, you want to get people places. as opposed to just building roads. sometimes that involves more infrastructure. sometimes it involves more tell acommuting. sometimes it involves smarter infrastructure that's going to tell people where to go so they're not in as much traffic. >> the goal is a good standard of living and the idea that businesses will invest and create jobs? if you have a good standard of living, it makes companies want to hire people. people want to live in these places and that's largely what it does. >> exactly. you want good mobility to get to work so you can get around. you want g

that american leadership is needed in trying to bring this conflict to a close in syria. >> all right. let's bring in president obama who, today, said this about a possible two state solution speaking of course on his trip in israel. >> let me say this as a politician. i can promise you this. political leaders will never take risks if the people do not push them to take some risks. you must create the change that you want to see. >> i remember that guy. that's hope and change obama. i know hope and change obama. i covered him in 2008. so is this just words about what hillary clinton once said about candidate obama or is there something concrete that is going to happen here? >> there is something concrete. sometimes as americans we may not fully appreciate the impact of when an american president goes to another nation. in this case a small nation, a nation that has fears at times, isn't always so confident. and when that president looks in the eye of 8 million israelis and he says, be proud, israel, you are the strongest country in the middle east, and also be very confident because the st
and wait for the microphone and identify yourself. we will start right in front here. >> the last few months, speculation that since the united states, president obama would be less active in israeli issues, that he may leave that to others, especially the europeans. which could mean not objecting to what the europeans are doing. measures have lately been taken that european countries -- an [indiscernible] any thoughts on that? >> i doubt that. first, and i have said before, he chose to take this trip. the trip itself sends a signal that he retains an interest in this. number two, i will never be in the u.s. interest to see bad ideas adopted. we will have to pick up the pieces anyway. those that think he is washing his hands of it -- if he was, he would not be taking a trip there. number two, the secretary of state made it clear that this is an issue of great interest to him. part of this trip is designed to not only send the president interest in it, but to create wind he hanged the that -- wind behind the bat. if you adopt ideas that, in the end will be distraught and, to try get s
some people's thinking right? this leads this avalanche of barack obama, the republicans coming out with this amicus brief, that kind of thing, leads to this highest public opinion poll we have seen so far. the constitutional law scholars say by far the most important of all of these factors at this point is public opinion. and that the court must weigh the institutional role right? of getting the constitution right, against having a reputation where the people, you know, see it as a place where justice will be done and not delivering decisions that are so far out of the main stream that then you have to, you know, send u.s. marshals out or whatever. you don't want to be in a situation like that. i'm not saying that -- of course constitutionally we want what is right to be done but the court weighs those things so public opinion does matter. by the way -- >> bill: for them to rule any other way right now -- for them to rule that -- that marriage equality is -- or the ban on marriage -- on same-sex marriage is constitution am would be just flying in the face of --
the young people. admittedly, more supportive of obama perhaps than the overall israeli public. >> maybe, but i mean many university students do lean right. most amazing thing about it for me was a huge ovation when president obama called for the creation of a palestinian state in different iterations and i was thinking when i was in there, if he had given that speak at an apec convention in washington, he might have been booed. i'm trying to imagine what arab audiences across the muslim world were thinking when they saw israelis cheer obama for calling, for palestinian state. it was kind of a brief moment of possibility there. >> and dennis, you spent so many years trying to make this happen, do you think in retrospect, that the administration got off on the wrong foot with prime minister netenyahu, the cairo speech, not following it up perhaps and calling for the settlement freeze in year one of the obama administration? >> well it's always easy to look back and look at what you might have done as opposed to what you did do. i think there's no doubt that clearly, the efforts that were
cities. that of course comes right in the middle of president obama's visit to israel. watch this. >> translator: if they do a damn thing the islamic republic will raze tel aviv and hypea to the ground. >> speaking in jerusalem president obama issued warnings of his own today about iran's nuclear efforts. >> a nuclear armed iran would raise the risk of nuclear terrorism, undermine the nonproliferation regime, would spark an arms race in a volatile region, and it would embolden a government that has shown no respect for the rights of its own people or the responsibilities of nations. >>> iran must know this time is not unlimited. and i have made the position of the united states of america clear. iran must not get a nuclear weapon. this is not a danger that can be contained and as president i've said all options are on the table for achieving our objectives. america will do what we must to prevent a nuclear armed iran. >> the president of the united states in jerusalem. let's go live to jerusalem right now. cnn's john king has been watching the president. a very busy day for the pr
in the jerusalem post entitled how would obama's speech. reads in part. obama delivered a potent plea to the israeli people to continue to work for peace, saying that not only was it the right just the thing to do it was the smart thing to do but one must question whether his chosen audience was indeed the one that needed convincing. >> josh, very moving words by the president in israeli. >> yeah, it was. to get a standing ovation in israel from young jews calling for a palestinian state is an achievement. >> mike, what did you think? >> strong day for the president. strong two days for the president in israel. not much in terms of specific policy, but his presentation to various audiences and the things that he said to the various audiences and to the world were very powerful messages. >> sam, this is a president that threw out much of his first term. wi was not trusted by a large number of israel people. look at ti looking at the speeches and events he did yesterday, i suspect that is not the case for much of his second term. he is engaged in the way he hasn't been engaged in israel
to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening right now out there. as president obama heads back to the u.s., just about 90 minutes or so from now after the final stop on his mideast trip he visited the fables city of petra, jordan, this morning. and one major topic of discussion for the president, the civil war going on in nearby syria, and the massive number of syrian refugees now in jordan. nbc's peter alexander is traveling with the president and joins us from amman. so peter with a good saturday morning to you. how has this trip gone so far for the president in jordan? >> well, right now, alex, the president's enjoying the end of his trip. punctuating it, as you noted, with a trip to the celebrated archaeological site in this country known as petra. the focus of the trip has largely been on the future. but at least for the last couple hours he's focusing on the middle east past. advisers tell me this is actually a place that president obama added to the itinerary. a destination that he very much wanted to see. sandstorms delayed his travel yesterday. but today that's proving
, deans on the professional staff. now, imagine if the obama administration felt the same responsibility to manage the federal government in the same way. >> a sequester for the university. all right. jason? >> this is a miss for new york governor andrew cuomo who wants to extend the temporary tax increase on high income earners in the state after promising to let it expire. for the second time extending that temporary tax increase. do you think voters would learn after a while they're being played here? apparently not. out in california governor jerry brown sold californians on a temporary tax increase for high income earners in his state. i guess the blue state liberals never learn. >> paul: bret? >> briefly a hit for pope francis off to a fantastic start and i think this is obviously true for catholics and even as a non-catholic you see a pope getting out and mingling with people and showing love and humility to the people assemblying by the hundreds of thousands in rome to see him. next week, he's going to go and wash the feet of inmates in a prison for young offenders and this is th
, right, and harvard knocked them off. so, yeah. it's a wonderful piece. and it sort of -- you know obama by his bracket. and it's really true. >> he wants to be right. >> yeah. >> doesn't want to be sentimental. he wants to be right. >> yeah, well, you know, one thing about the ncaa, if you don't take the risk, you don't win the pool. very true. some might say the same is true when you're the president. >> bloomberg today, jonathan maller's piece, obama's ncaa bracket, hope but no change. same is going on with cyprus. >> right. i mean this one -- >> there is a change. there's a deal. >> there is a deal. and they are not going to tax deposits up to 100,000 euros, which would have been the equivalent of confiscation of property. these were insured deposits. and the problem is now is that they're going to do levies on deposits above $100,000 and a lot of these are russians. and the real interesting thing, how is russia going to react to some of their wealthiest getting taxed like this? and there is going to be an east versus west tension and it will be interesting to see what happens. >> do
